Is this a friendly race for civvies?
Anyone done this before? It's described as "competitive" which puts me off a little - any thoughts on how friendly it is to non-RAF runners?
I shouldn't worry Freemers, the Help For Heroes 6m run in Aldershot a few months back was a very mixed ability road race, winner ran it 30 minutes or so but plenty of runners came in around the hour mark or more.
The Honington event having inter service competition won't make it any different to any other road race where there is usually inter club rivalry going on. There'll just be a few more RAF, Army and Navy coloured vests around than usual.
My experience of servce events is of them being run like you'd expect, road closures mean just that and they don't skimp on marshalling and the like. Don't be put off, you'll find them welcoming.
Sezz and myself did the Help for Heroes Aldershot event too. It was very well organised, there was very good support from the marshalls on the way round and there were runners of all abilities. The only slight problem was that the course was a touch short but, as it was classed as a charity event, who cares. It looks like the Honington 10K has a UKA permit so the course will be accurate.
Do we just pitch up at the main gates at the air base? i am hoping to enter on the day if I can get the time off work.
I looked up the results, but I am afraid the link is wrong as it comes up with ''Halton Hills' results. Could you please check this.
Thanks for well organised race. Registration, race itself and the cakes in the finish... all were fantastic!
